    Where have all the original people gone?

    Alright, I didn't want to post a second thread in the same day, but this has got to stop....

    What the bloody hell is going on around here? I keep wandering into threads only to see the same format for how it starts: "Following something said in suchandsuch thread, I've decided to start my own thread on that subject." What happened? Have all the interesting news stories dried up? Has Durf posted all the useless and funny links? Has the cosmos poinged its last poing? :scratch:

    I just can't help but feel that the OTF has just become pretty craptacular within the past week or two. I dunno why. Maybe I'm just overreacting. Maybe I'm just being a tad b****y. But it really does seem like there is an overwhelming lack of originality in some of the threads being made. And it would also seem that there is a vast increase in the amount of annoying and useless threads too. :rant:

    I'm just curious as to whether or not it's just me, or if anyone else might have noticed this too?

    (I know this resembles my thread x months back having something to do with cyclicity in the OTF, but *shrugs* I can't quite recall it and it was wiped a while back, so here we go again.)

    There were a couple "Military Aircraft" and "Fighter Planes !!!" threads but they died quickly. I guess in order to get lot of people posting, someone needs to go around pissing everyone off.

    Or at least post something controversial. Otherwise, nobody cares.

    Never seen this before. Cycles my man, cycles. Just like a woman, this forum is a product of cycles.

    I know, but it's a new cycle I haven't seen yet. The spam threads I can deal with, because they can be somewhat entertaining. But when it gets to the point that we're talking about the beauty of mounds of dead white cells on one's face, I start to ask myself questions... ya know?

    We should take a vow to discuss only useless information for a day

    Wait, that would be all political threads :scratch:

    Uhm... I ran over your dog! :teeth: Alright, that was sad.. Sorry. Fluffy jumped outta nowhere and the car just wouldn't brake quick enough. Blame it on ABS brakes. Sorry dude. :hanky:



    Really? Hurm... Didn't notice. Care to enlighten me as to how you'd like to compare this to a thread about the beauty of skin outbreaks? :scratch:

    The pimple popping thread provided some temporary amusement. A very simple point, but a point nonetheless, which is more than I can say for this thread.

    Tried, didn't work. Took it about 15 minutes for it to slide damn well near the bottom of the front page. Thought a sports article might appeal to some people around here, but obviously it didn't enough.


    Point of this thread was to ask a question and see what others thought. To share an opinion and allow others to form their own and express theirs. I can't seem to find the humor in a thread about pussbubbles of dead white cells amusing. Sorry, guess it just isn't my type of humor. *shrugs*

    So who wants to go to the store to get the tampons and Midol? I sure as hell am not going to do it.

    I think he has the forum version of ADHD.

    I suggest heavy drinking. That always makes this place more entertaining. :teeth:
